America’s Largest Children’s Book Publisher, Scholastic, Erases Israel from the Map in a New Children’s Book!

America’s Largest Children’s Book Publisher, Scholastic, Erases Israel from the Map in a New Children’s Book!

November 13, 2013

The new Scholastic-released Children’s story, “Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt,” about modern investigative journalists on a scavenger hunt in Egypt, is causing a bit of a stir in Jerusalem today.
According to The Times of Israel, the kid-friendly map which features most prominently in the book omits Israel’s existence! In-fact, the map shows Israel’s borders consumed by Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

The error was first made public after a Canadian Jewish immigrant to Jerusalem found the discrepancy while reading The Blue Scarab Hunt to her son as a bedtime story!

Adina Golombek said she was “shocked” by Israel’s absence because she wanted to show her seven year-old where they were living on the map in his new book.

She told reporters:

“I wanted to show my son where we lived in the Middle East, but it didn’t say Israel on the map; instead it said Jordan… I showed him the problem and drew in the border of where Israel is today.”

Americans should spend more time

thinking about our own culture, our founding princiles, and the future of our kids.

Isn't that what America used to stand for?

Palestine too

And Lebanon. And The Gaza Strip.

They'll not be missed.

Wiped from the map. Didn't Henry Kissinger predict this?

And you support Kissinger's prediction and sentiments?

Right now, you're sounding like you have the same sentiments as that evil globalist.

What gives, DrB...? Lawmanjed has been a solid liberty-loving poster and commenter. Why do you have to be so dramatic and confrontational?

I've been watching your recent history, and it does not reflect a thoughtful liberty-loving patriot. It reflects a pot-stirring troll, parading himself as a patriot.

You don't fool me.

I don't equate lines on a map with the people who are controlled by them. I think all lines should be wiped off the map and nation states should not exist as they do now.

I never told anyone I was going to use violence as a resolution to any matter. The globalists are those who use the state to control the people while claiming ownership over and rights to rule them.

Israel and Saudi Arabia

have to much influence over foreign policy so any effort to get rid of the two would be best for America and Americans and American Soldiers.

Excuse me for butting in, but...

It looks to me like you said,

"Israel and Saudi Arabia...any effort to get rid of the two would be best for America"

Dr. Paul has said countless times, "Be friends with and trade with all nations."

What is someone with an opinion like you just expressed doing on a liberty forum dedicated to the principles espoused by Ron Paul????

Trolling, or did you just momentarily "lose your way"?

I think you just revealed what I see a lot of - people who like Ron Paul for his liberty principles, but only because you want liberty and freedom for yourself, not because you want others to have liberty and freedom.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17

Ron Paul said trade with all nations

Israel isn't trading with us. Israel is collecting welfare off the American taxpayer.

...

I believe his statement was in regards to our foreign policy and how it does not follow the will of the people. I think you have lost your way. It is quite obvious that the state of Israel and Saudi Arabia is not in the best interest of the people.

I get that, but,

That's no excuse to use the words "wiped from the map". Instead you should have proposed the position Dr. Paul holds instead of inferring wiping the State of Israel off the map.

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.

Ron Paul has said he is a True Zionist. True Zionism is based on independence and self-Reliance. Not dependence and reliance on the state. What should be more concerning and pressing than a map is the blood shed that is occurring on a daily basis in the geographical location that the map is referring to.

Israel/Jew haters here make me sick...

You are no friend of liberty, and no friend of mine.

See you when SHTF...

Say no to entangling alliances. The shit has been hitting the fan for some time now. Let's just say it is messy. A friend of liberty would never side with an oppressor. The state is corrupt.

It's one thing to criticize government(s) & entangling alliances

Another to condemn an entire nation of individuals, and anyone who would support them. I am Jewish, you think I would see my people killed? I know you would like that, but because I don't hardly makes me NOT about liberty.

It's one thing to oppose foreign aid, which many other Islamic governments receive as well; in fact, foreign governments/countries that have openly declared hostility to Israel receive(d) 7x (seven times) the amount of American taxpayer FRNs than did Israel (stats from 2012).

You are brain washed. I don't even know where to start. I guess I am just an inferior gentile so I won't bother trying. Oh, how I wish I was born part of the Jewish master race...

Look, I see all men as human. I have seen enough to know that not everyone holds the same definition of human.

How about this. Wipe all the imaginary lines off the map and you look at me in the eye when I'm talking to you.

Look at You in the eye when you're talking to Me? Seriously?

You know we're on the internet, right nutjob?

You're the brainwashed, hate-filled collectivist who wants to wipe an entire country off the map. You're seriously sick. What am I your slave? Look you in the eye, when you're talking to me? Is that an order? Who's the one with the superiority complex?

You know what, I'd not only look you in the eye, but I'd break your jaw if you said something like that to my face.

Nah... More than likely you're a government troll who loves these kinds of threads so he can make the DP look racist. Good luck in 2014, 2016, with idiots like Dr. BATSHIT (seriously, joking about Dr.Paul calling him Dr.Batshit).

Where you, Dr.Batshit get off talking about master-race non-sense to a Jewish person, is just unbelievable. Jews have been slaves in Egypt, Roman subjects, 2nd class citizens all over the world, holocausted in Germany, systematically persecuted in Russia, and are now being attacked for owning a tiny piece of land in the Middle-East, that is their Biblical homeland. Never have Jews ever claimed to be a 'Master-Race. It's a religion, first of all you nit-wit, brainwashed fool. And it's the people like YOU, the NAZIs who coined all that "master-race" crap. All Israeli Jews want is a place to call home, where they will not have to worry about being scapegoated and persecuted for being Jewish, exactly as you and Hitler, and hundreds of other tyrants have done.

On a standard Risk board

The entire area is lumped into one region called the "middle east".

Must be anti-semitic. /s

On a "Circus Maximus" Risk board...

..which shows 60 countries (including the continents of Antarctica [Graham Land & Vostok] & Oceanea [Guam, Fiji, Hawaii, Tahiti, & Galapagos], Israel, along with Lebanon, Jordan, and the rest of Arabia, is subsumed by Arabia, technically in Asia.

It is nefarious, however, Circus Maximus does give props to Texas, Alaska, Quebec, Persia and even gives names to the states of Australia -- Darwin & Victoria rather than West & East.

As it should be.

If the U.S. would have stayed out of any involvement in helping create a state based only on a religion, then we wouldn't have the problems associated in the middle east which we have now and we always will.

Our founders warned us against us doing that.

They would NOT have approved of our nation-building - and our nation destroying ways (Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, etc).

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Israel is on the map, its just misspelled as "Jordan"

Israel is on the map, its just misspelled as "Jordan", that's all!

Greater Israel advocates demand the apocalyptic borders of Israel "from the sea to the Euphrates". The map clearly shows Greater Israel coloured in "sacrificial spotless red heifer" crimson.

Alternatively, Greater Syria advocates claim Israel AND Jordan are fake entities that must be liquidated, and their territories respectively merged with Syria.

Anyway, its a children's fiction about fake Egyptology, not a geography lesson. Should we care?

Its a shame a "liberty" news site is trumpeting this nonsense.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

I wonder if the Jewish mother

I wonder if the Jewish mother showed her son the Palestinian state, now recognized by the UN but not Israel?

And this reflects well on the Liberty movement how?

This post happens to be prominently displayed on the website. Seems a bit interventionist to me.

There is a lot of bigotry here towards Jews

I understand a distaste for the Israeli government, as much as ours, but Israelis have a right to a home as much as Palistenians do. Unfortunetly the Israeli government is corrupt and treats Palistenians like sub humans.

Good comment.

Jews are not the problem; Israel's racist anti-semite leaders are the problem.

About.....

Time!
